    Hi All
    I have bought few meditation music CDs. I am trying to copy the music to laptops. I couldn't succeed when I tried using Windows media player Rip options. Could you please help me out?

    Any reason why you don't succeed? Windows Media Player is fine (normally) for ripping audio CD. For the ones I've struggled with a USB stick with Ubuntu desktop on and then using something like Sound-Juicer was successful BUT you will need a second USB stick to copy the files onto to move them back to your laptop.

    It's been years (10+) since I last tried to rip and convert any sort of optical media. I can't remember the name exactly but I used an programme I used but there a loads of 3rd party programes that will rip the CD and convert to MP3 for you, just search.

    I use fairstars CD Ripper, allows you to select a number of formats and has worked fine on all of my CDS. It's also free :)
